Applications to edit and make C and/or C++ into programs are freely available. Visual Studio Express is probably the best for windows. GCC/G++ is readily available on all *nix boxes. I'm not familiar with Macs, so someone else might be better to comment for them.

c/c++ are not physical things you can 'get' they are a programming language. There are plenty of tutorials freely available to learn this language just like any other.

And as the previous post mentioned there are programs (compilers) that are good and free that will take what you write and make it into a program that you can run on your computer.

Express edition requires you to "register" after thirty days - but that's no more than just creating a free(!) and useful account with MS. Having that account is also useful for Microsoft Developer's Network and the like.

Have a look at Microsoft's visual C++ Express editions:

Seconded.

2008 just came out but I don't know how stable it is. You may want to stick with 2005 for now.
I haven't heard anything bad about 2008. Also, there aren't as many hoops to jump through to get basic Windows applications up and running (Platform SDK, anyone?).

I'am also going to be looking for c# too.
There's an Express for that, too, among others.

If you're new to C++, I wouldn't completely suggest VC++ Express just yet. There are other IDEs that are freely available and don't have as much of a learning curve. One of them is Code::Blocks. It's an editor that will work with several compilers (gcc, VC++, etc).
Code::Blocks

You'll have to find another one for C# as C::B is for C/C++ as far as I know.
